Battle of Corinth...



Item # 666534

November 05, 1862

THE CRISIS, Columbus, Ohio, Nov. 5, 1862 

* Rare pro-Confederate publication

From the midst of the Civil War, some of the articles are headed: "The Mississippi" "Greeley on Amalgamation of Races" "Our Recent Losses in Kentucky" "War News of the Week" "Shameless Conduct" "Lincoln's Last Story" "Battle of Corinth--Overwhelming Victory" & much more.
Eight pages, nice condition.

Described as "The Hottest Rebel Sheet to be found in the North or the South" this newspaper opposed the war and attracted the hatred of the Republicans and the Lincoln administration. It insisted that slavery could not be prohibited by law. So obnoxious was this paper to Unionists that it was denied circulation in some cities. In 1863 the press was raided by a hateful mob.
